My latest: Katie Porter is off the Financial Services Committee. We’re all worse off for it. "If you're an American seeking help with your finances & looking for someone, anyone in Washington to listen ... you want a champion. You want a Katie Porter.

Ri-diculous

If you're up early Sunday morning, I'll be a guest on @VelshiMSNBC, talking domestic terrorism (and double standards!), at roughly 8.25am and 9.40am.

See you then :-)

Just drove through DC -- thousands of armed soldiers; military trucks are blocking dozens of streets, and military checkpoints are everywhere. I never imagined the streets of a major American city would ever look like this!

A white military veteran shot and wounded a 15-year-old girl when he fired his gun into a car carrying four Black teens at a rally supporting Donald Trump near the Iowa Capitol last month. #ialeg

It's these kind of local, below-the-radar stories that too many in the media in DC & NYC ignored for far too long, which is why so many were shocked by the events of January 6th, when instead they should have been ready and prepared for them.

This is a violent, racist cult.

Time to face the harsh reality, socialist Bernie Sanders will become the chairman of the Sen Budget Committee. He has vowed to use his position to enact his progressive agenda on healthcare, climate, infrastructure spending, & cutting defense spending.

Giuliani is helping Trump with his impeachment defense.

Giuliani claims Trump didn't incite the crowd to violence.

Then Giuliani explained his definition of incitement, and it is a precise description of what Trump did on January 6

This is pretty cool.

@peacockTV made a promo for my nightly show, the @mehdihasanshow, featuring some of the big names and great guests who have appeared since we launched in October.

Are you subscribed to Peacock (for free)? Are you watching my show?

If not, watch this please

Biden’s “aggressive” immigration agenda includes a path to citizenship for 11 million undocumented immigrants.

The Post obtained hours of video footage, some exclusively, and placed it within a digital 3-D model of the building to map the rioters’ movements and assess the peril that lawmakers faced.

Attacked with bear spray, pipes and their own batons: D.C. police describe brutal and chaotic moments at the U.S. Capitol

It's amazing to me that despite being brutalized by an angry terrorist mob, none of these Capitol Hill police "feared for their lives" enough to open fire.... Makes you wonder if that's a legitimate defense at all.... Or it only applies when cops shoot black people 🤔

Quoted @kevincollier

A weekend read: I wrote about many of the Capitol arrests so far stemming from the insurrectionists having the worst opsec imaginable

It’s easy to think of the Capitol rioters as idiots—live streaming their crimes. But it also speaks to how brazen Trump has been about lawlessness, how emboldened his followers felt to commit insurrection, and how confident they were that Trump would protect them.
